you could have said joo instead of kyllä right?
puhua means to talk.
vähän means a little.

but why did you put kyllä after puhun? isn't it natural to say "yes i speak a little bit english" instead of "i speak yes a little bit english"? blink.gif

Here's an introduction to Finnish for foreigners

http://donnerwetter.kielikeskus.helsinki...-index.htm

don't want to be nit picky but

(1) Diese Einleitung in die finnische Sprache ist in zwei Teile eingeteilt.

Im ersten Teil lernen Sie einige der wichtigsten finnischen Wörter für den Alltagsgebrauch, wie z.B. Zahlen, die Uhrzeiten, und vieles mehr. Der zweite Teil enthält eine kurze Einführung in die Grundlagen der finnischen Grammatik. Sie können dabei auch Ihren Wortschatz (4) weiter erweitern, (2) zum Beispiel bei der Reisegeschichte der Familie Kemp. Insgesamt werden Sie in beiden Teilen die finnische Kultur näher kennenlernen (3), und können nebenbei auch verschiedene ausgewählte finnische Websites besuchen.

Falls es beim Abspielen der Tonaufnahmen Probleme geben sollte, können Sie hier einige Ratschläge finden.


(1) diese einführung in die finnische sprache ist in zwei teile gegliedert/unterteilt.
(2) beispielsweise - "zum beispiel" is okay but they used it one after another which isn't in proper style.
(3) grammatically correct but no need to point it off.
(4) tautology

but all in all it's a solid translation and definitely understandable the way it's written right now. :P

anyway. i'll check it out. thanks for the link. :D :D :D
